    jonp replied to a thread Finally got my knife back... in Our Town
    Great story. Imagine, a kid with a knife? I got my first knife, a Buck Trapper and cut my knuckles learning that it didn't have a lock blade thing on it and didn't do it again. Must have been 6 or 7yrs old and have had a knife in my pocket ever...

    I agree. I've dealt with several companies that clearly state that if the item is not in stock to be shipped your card will not be charged until it does. It's your option to continue the deal or cancel it. One place right now has said up front that...

    My Rossi has not like the Lee 300gr mold I have. It does ok with the 255gr stuff. Fun to shoot with 200 or 230gr lead. I'd not hesitate to take any hog with the 255gr

    I've got it sitting on a rubber mat but I'm not sure how to ground it better. It's pretty much all plastic. It seems to throw fine. I check the weights with a GemPro 250 every 10 or so and it's within -.05-+.05gr or .1 occasionally which is fine...

    I'm amazed at what my old CRV will do. AWD is quite the thing. We get the sold out bread, milk and hot pockets here. First time we saw it when a hurricane was maybe going to show up we were baffled as we never heard of such a thing in Vermont....

    Wife got it for me a couple of years ago and it's pretty accurate but a problem has surfaced. I wipe the inside with a dryer sheet and keep one in the hopper when not in use. That's worked fine up till this week. I was loading some 38sp WC I...

    Ordered brass from a place in Rhode Island. I called and talked to them on the phone and when I asked they said the brass was in stock and would be shipped Monday, this was on a Saturday. Cool. 10 days later I call back as I didn't hear anything....

    If your on a small fishing boat I'm not sure you need to do that unless your on the Great Lakes or something. The relaxing ride to the fishing spot or trolling on the way there is part of the reason your out there I think. At least for us it was but...
